Rare to see one in my location ... I've only seen two other Maserati's on the road in my area this year.
I think they have a long way to go before they loose their exclusivity. Because of a limited dealer base I think you are seeing a clustering around major markets.
That said, they are no doubt looking to "profitably" grow. Some of that growth will benefit all of us with increased efficiency, access to parts and service plus hopefully a higher quality of service (from order to end of car life). If they expect to approach BMW, Audi and Mercedes sales without distancing to far from the exclusivity the Aston Martin like cars they have failed before they even started. There is a fine line between exclusive and affordable ... it will be interesting to see how they proceed. If there was no Ghibli Q4, I would have not bought a QP ... it would have been between 1-2 year old Maserati GT-S or Aston Martin.
Regardless ... if they don't get their customer service and quality standards up to expectations, (and industry top tier), this (growth) will all come crashing down. I too, was toying in buying one of those 22 days handmade cars, but decided to get the next generation of technology and hopefully reliability. No one does anything 100% wrong or right ... there is always opportunity for improvement.
Lets hope the power of the customer / prospective customer and stockholder can make this work great for this car and the next 500+ HP Maserati. No CEO wants a negative, but true, question from a shareholder at a stock holders meeting. It's amazing the (actual) responses you can get from down to earth CEO's when you send constructive questions via email.
